At a time when cities face increasing environmental and societal changes, it’s crucial for urban policy makers to adapt transportation systems accordingly. With the right information, evidence-based decisions can be made to overcome the challenges of the 21st century. That’s where data collection and analysis come in. They’re essential for sustainable transport planning and play a vital role in various areas of the transport system. TUMI is working on making mobility data available for cities in Africa, Latin America and Asia to shape the digital transformation of urban mobility in a climate-friendly way.

Digitization is the key to transforming sustainable urban mobility. By leveraging mobility data and digital tools, cities can optimize their transportation systems, reduce emissions, improve air quality, and enhance accessibility for all users. Imagine identifying underserved areas, optimizing public transport routes, and promoting alternative modes of transportation such as cycling and walking.

Moreover, the rapid development of digital technologies offers exciting opportunities for innovation in the mobility sector. The integration of shared mobility solutions is just the beginning. By harnessing the potential of digitization, we can create more sustainable and efficient urban mobility systems that benefit both the environment and society as a whole. Join us in this exciting journey towards a better, greener future!
